Obituary for Harold Orville Ellsworth

Harold O. Ellsworth, 83, beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away on Saturday, September 29, 2018. Harold was born and raised in Ohio, the oldest of 18 children born to the late Harold and Margaret Ellsworth.

He joined the Air Force and proudly served our country for 28 years achieving the rank of Senior Master Sargent. The Air Force sent him to Florida where he met and married his late wife, Carol. They built their life together with their daughters, Teri and Diane while traveling to various Air Force bases around the United States and the Philippine Islands.

He and Carol were faithful members and enjoyed serving First Presbyterian Church in Goldsboro for 44 years.

The family is very grateful for the loving care given to Harold by Star and Tom Vick. Their care allowed him to stay in his home, maintain his independence, and their family embraced him as one of their own.

A celebration of Harold’s life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at First Presbyterian Church in Goldsboro. The family will greet friends immediately following the service in McChesney Hall.

Harold is survived by his daughters, Teri Dobbins and husband Ken of Hillsborough and Diane Martin and husband David of Graham, Washington; grandchildren, Ariel Martin, Robert Dobbins, Spencer Dobbins and Tyler Dobbins; and great-grandchildren, Hudson and Brooklyn Dobbins.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made in his memory to First Presbyterian Church Mission Fund, 1101 E. Ash Street, Goldsboro, NC 27534.
